Alison Haynes of IntelePeer Recognized as One of CRN’s 2018 Women of the Channel

San Mateo, CA, May 15, 2018 – IntelePeer, a leading provider of cloud-based communication services and applications, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Alison Haynes, Vice President of Marketing and Partner Programs to its prestigious 2018 Women of the Channel list. The executives who comprise this annual list span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.

CRN editors select the Women of the Channel honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.

As Vice President of Marketing and Partner Programs at IntelePeer, Alison Haynes guides and develops the strategic program direction of the Cloud Advantage Partner Program, enablement tools and loyalty programs that generate revenue and growth for IntelePeer’s partners.

Under Haynes’ leadership, IntelePeer recently introduced a new program tier to accommodate Cisco collaboration partners moving into recurring services through voice services for Cisco Webex Teams as well as onboarding program, tools and materials.  Haynes was also instrumental in IntelePeer’s move to a 100% Indirect Channel go-to-market strategy that minimizes channel conflict, connects customers with trusted advisors who can manage end-to-end implementation, and focuses on partner enablement and profitability. This move enables IntelePeer to collaborate more closely with partners on delivering new and enhanced product offerings based on customer needs, compress sales cycles and provide partners with more resources and support.

IntelePeer’s cloud-based voice communications, with build-on features such as multi-channel Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and Cloud Routing, and multiple connection options, go beyond business communications and simple interactions. IntelePeer enables our partners to leverage our innovative solutions and in-depth expertise to automate business processes and enhance the customer experience.

“I am honored to be recognized by CRN as a 2018 Woman of the Channel and to be part of a group that empowers and cultivates today’s, and tomorrow’s, next generation of leaders,” said Alison Haynes. “As a channel-only company, trusted relationships with our partners are key to our success. I’m proud to be part of an organization that continually goes above and beyond for our partners with reliable and innovative products, best-in-class support and channel resources.”

“This accomplished group of leaders is steadily guiding the IT channel into a prosperous new era of services-led business models and deep, strategic partnerships,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2018 Women of the Channel list honors executives who are driving channel progress through a number of achievements—exemplary partner programs, innovative product development and marketing, effective team-building, visionary leadership and accelerated sales growth—as well as advocacy for the next generation of women channel executives.”

The 2018 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at
